was very big in europe, certainly big in latin america, certainly big in north america. his next final frontier would have been ace asia. he had a couple outposts. a few more years, the asians would become big victims. they were lucky and escaped. there were hundreds of people, if not thousands that knew madoff was a fraud. they need to be brought to justice. most of the perpetrators overseas will not be brought to justice and very few in north america will be brought to justice. i don't think the government has the resources to do this case and bring everybody to the bar of justice they need to. tavis: so when you suggest that persons who read your book as you have been touring around the country, understand the clear english, the clear language in which you right, that the s.e.c. should have understood if everyday folk can figure that out, do the victims, a tough question for some people to swallow, but do the victims here have any responsibility in knowing or having some idea that with a line that only goes straight up that something was wrong here, something was a little fishy here

really believe america is ripe for a political realignment. i think both parties are basically controlled and owned by the big powerful special interests. the political industrial complex that does business in and around washington. congressman paul knows exactly what i'm talking about. both parties basically decide what the solutions are that confront the american people based upon the different special interest groups that descend on washington. your success in minnesota, jesse, i think had a lot to do with the fact that even in the late '90s there was a real hunger for some sort of new political way. and i think america particularly now with the economy being what it is ripe for that. and i think congressman paul says it exactly right. why are we in america in so many far away places fighting wars in different places when you really have to ask yourself whether or not that is really a vital american interest. and so i think the right person who speaks on these issues, there is a place for them. go ahead, sorry. >> jesse: i can tell you about the wars. people are making money off the wa

battleground continues to dismay, discourage, and enrage. america's designated driver there, hamid karzai, is proving increasingly unstable behind the wheel. the united states put karzai in power and our soldiers have been fighting and dying on his behalf ever since. despite widespread corruption in his government. now he's making threats against the western coalition that is shedding blood and treasure on his behalf. even more disturbing, for the moment, are the civilian deaths from nighttime raids and aerial bombings by american and other nato troops. just this week, we learned of an apparent cover-up following a special forces raid in february that killed five civilians, including three women, two of whom were pregnant. it's believed bullets were gouged from the women's bodies to conceal evidence of american involvement. this slaughter of innocents has led the pro-american "economist" magazine to question whether our entire effort in afghanistan "has been nothing but a meaningless exercise of misguided violence." with me is a man with first-hand experience of war. andrew bacevich serve
